    Same cloud is right here today with me also Blake. 0-3 on checking right now but a few more to go and I just got word form company mangement that it looks like I will be going out on my own at end of month as company has decided to shut the grant division down. Oh well, one door closes and another one opens. I always wanted to have my own company anyway so looks like its full speed ahead with joining back up with my old partner Margaret Stark and First Responder Grants now.

    Ah, but that cloud has a silver lining - you get the company and get to work with Margaret again.

    I heard there are already some people talking to you about grant writing possibilities too!

    Nothing will change except the name of company and who signs the paychecks.Everything else stays the same as it has always been.New website and email is functioning, old email still working for several months still. Check profile for those changes Jim.

    Kurt--i think i'll offer CONGRATULATIONS instead of sympathy!! Keep us all posted on your activity, you know where to find me (at least until Labor Day when things begin to quiet down!!)

    Safer is a hard one to snag. I finely realized the intent of the grant. It is just two of us full timers here and I was asking for two more. That is all the city would go for even though it is 15 police officers. The intent of the grant is to have someone at the station 24/7 and AFG knows that canít be done with just four. So we are still doing the work of four or five so I know where you are coming from. Have not had a vacation in 5 years or so, I think. Got 30 days to take off before the first of Oct. or lose it. Guess I will lose them again this year. Should have started in another field of work or some other city.
    Well I hate it for you on the DJ. If that is what you really need then go for it again. It is like asking a woman for !!!!! You know what I mean. Donít get it unless you ask.
    Have a great day. You may want to get with Kurt he has had good luck with the safer program.

    Yeah I'll review my app and see where I can improve it. I just was kinda hoping that becuase I asked for such a small amount it would mkae it more likely to get funded. Oh well at least were no worst off then we were before lol.
